The idea of a tree

July 16, 2008 § 1 Comment

I found this machine to be super interesting…

Powered by nothing but sunlight and some threads, Thomas Traxlers‘ “The idea of a tree project” shows us how objects can grow during the course of a day. The installation is powered by a couple of solar cells which power the entire device, causing the process to move faster or slower depending on the amount of available light. The speed of the process determines the amount of saturation of the thread, giving a visual recording in the resulting object.
